Understatement

No poem out of him.
Not a single word. 

I heard no music as he left.
No elemental strangers visited after.
The wind did not even stir my hair. 

No leaves fell.
The sky did not shift out of place.

The scene outside sat.
As if nothing happened. 

My tear fell.
Small puddle.
But that was just gravity.

I wiped my face
And sat
Down.
